All Elite Wrestling’s newly-created games division made an announcement quite some time ago that they have plans of launching the promotion’s first-ever console video game and since then top AEW Star and one of the company’s Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega has been providing regular updates of when the game could possibly be launched as well as gameplay updates.
Kenny Omega also spoke about how there is a huge emphasis on the actual wrestling part of the game as well as how the feeling should be there of the flow of the actual match within the video game and how they want the user to assume the role of their favorite AEW Star and have complete control of the AEW Star.
Fightful Select reported last month that the promotion’s first-ever console video game will feature a story mode and members of the AEW roster were helping out, giving input and providing what was needed in completing the video game. It was also mentioned that when it was first announced that AEW will be launching a console video game, no timeframe was provided, but there has been talks of the video game being released sometime in September, though that was only a tentative date and there hasn’t been any confirmation yet. It was also noted that despite there still being a lot of work to be done, the plan for quite some time now has been to release the video game this year and September is widely regarded as the target release date.
Even though September is only a tentative date and there is a huge possibility that the game could be released at a later time, AEW President and CEO Tony Khan, alongside AEW announcer Justin Roberts and AEW referee Aubrey Edwards asked the fans inside the Petersen Events Center last week on AEW Dynamite to participate in recording several chants for the game. Some of those chants for the game are “FTR,” “Cash,” “Dax,” “Boom,” “Bay Bay,” “Adam Page” and “Sting” and AEW CEO Tony Khan would even tease that the title of AEW’s console video game is “AEW: Fight Forever.”
More information in regards to the company’s first-ever console video game is set to be released some time next week as the official AEW Games Twitter account noted that they have something very exciting to show to the fans next week on All Elite Arcade and it was also revealed that this would be a sneak peak of the console video game.
